Trying to track down some emails.  Our mail scanners are saying that they were processing emails and sending them to the exchange server (scanner logs say that they were successully delivered to the email server) but the Exchange services weren't started (We lost power and Exchange server came up after AD servers so Exchange services didn't start).  Rebooted the Exchange server and services started but I'm just trying to track down those emails that were sent to the Exchange server during that time (when Exchange services weren't started).  Thanks in advance...Using Exchange 2003 and mail scanners are Symantec Messaging Gateway scanners...
